The Love of Caring for a Horse

This was Dar two weeks before I got him:
This is Dar today, six months later:
There was something on my camera lens that blurred focus here and there, but not enough to dampen the impact of the comparison, I don't think. I look at these pictures and feel proud. From an underweight, parasite-ridden sad sack has emerged an engaged, hammy and healthy 1,300-pound youngster who's just begun school.
We have so much to look forward to.

He not only looks physically better, but he looks happier, too! He looks proud of himself now.

Thank you all for your comments; I appreciate them. I thought I could see a big difference in Dar, but affirmation from those who don't see him every day feels wonderful.
